The heart wants what the heart wants. Unless it doesn’t, in which case all sorts of emotional torture and mind games ensue. Ernest Hemingway’s The Garden of Eden, directed by John Irvin, sees an American couple traveling through France on their honeymoon when the fetishist wife with possessive issues brings a third party into the relationship, first as a toy and then as a rival as she loses control.
